In order to increase the yield of the product and to maintain the product quality consistently, key issues of process optimization, industrial fermentation and scale-up studies are targeted at maintaining a set of homogenous conditions that reduces and minimizes the microbial risk towards stress and enhance their productivity by improving their metabolic accuracy. For every individual product, the set of process parameters that influence the yield and quality of the product will change. Those set of process parameters might be a single parameter or in combination with other parameter or many individual parameters and those parameters need to be identified and need to be optimized accordingly to the microbe used and product formed. Process parameters characterizations need to be done either based on in situ or online measurements or by various optimization techniques in order to find out the optimized set of conditions those enhance the product yield and quality and reduces the risk to the microbial source in all the possible ways.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
